Ok let me see if I get what was on the menu right for the state dinner.
Meatless menu
A mix of Indian and American favorites, including some African-American standards.
Collard greens and curried prawns, chickpeas and okra, nan and cornbread
Arugula from the White House garden
Pumpkin pie tart
Potato and eggplant salad,
